Step-by-Step Guide for Collaborating on Freshdesk Tickets in Slack
Freshdesk agents in the Slack channel can collaborate with other Slack members, even those who are not Freshdesk agents. This broadens the scope of collaboration, bringing diverse insights and quicker resolutions.
- To start collaborating on a ticket, a Freshdesk agent must click the 'Collaborate' button below the ticket details in Slack. Note that only Freshdesk agents can invite Slack members to collaborate on tickets.
- Replies within the Slack channel ticket thread will automatically be added as private notes in Freshdesk. These notes include the Slack channel URL, allowing easy navigation back to the relevant Slack thread.
- When a reply or private note is added to a ticket in Freshdesk, a notification message is sent to the corresponding Slack channel. This message includes the ticket reply and URL, ensuring all team members are updated.
Slack and Freshdesk both offer a wide range of features, and the ability to integrate them is a powerful example. Collaborating on tickets can help customers get notifications about the status of their tickets, and agents resolve their issues faster, thus increasing overall productivity by allowing for more effective communication within your team. Here’s how ClearFeed is helping businesses scale customer support on Slack by integrating Freshdesk and Slack.
